Get your donations ready…
Since my chances of attending a World Series game are VERY slim, I’d like to start collecting donations now.
So…if you’ve already made a pledge, there are two ways you can make your donation:
OPTION ONE = WRITE A CHECK:
Make the check payable to Pitch In For Baseball and mail it to:
Pitch In For Baseball
c/o Zack Hample
1541 Gehman Road
Harleysville, PA 19438
FYI: The reason for writing “c/o Zack Hample” is to inform the folks at Pitch In For Baseball that you’re one of my donors. This will help them keep track of all the money I’m raising for them. Not a single penny of the money will ever end up in my possession (in case Conan succeeded in raising doubts).
OPTION TWO = PAY BY CREDIT CARD:
Here’s how to do this:
1) Visit my fundraising page.
2) Scroll to the bottom.
3) Look for the red banner that says “Make a Contribution.”
4) Click the “Other” option at the bottom of the box.
5) Type in the amount of your donation.
6) Click the “Continue” button down below and follow the remaining steps.
If you’re wondering exactly how much you owe, click here and scroll down to the master list of donors. Here’s a screen shot from the middle of the list:
As you can see, there are two columns of numbers. The column on the left indicates how much money you pledged per ball; the column on the right shows how much your donation has amounted to. (I snagged 532 balls this season, so all the pledges have been multiplied by that number.)
Does all of this make sense?
Let me know if you have questions.
BTW…I’m going to follow up with people via email, especially those who don’t read this blog regularly, so don’t worry…all 128 donors will be hearing about this.
Three more things:
1) If you’re trying to decide between sending a check or paying with a credit card, go for the check. If you use a credit card, the credit card company will skim a small processing fee from your donation, but if you pay with a check, 100 percent of your donation will go to Pitch In For Baseball. That said, don’t feel guilty about using a credit card. It’s really not THAT big of a deal.
2) It’s not too late to make a pledge. Even though I probably won’t snag any more baseballs this season, you can still donate money to this cause.
3) If there’s anyone reading this who has an extra World Series ticket
that they’d be willing to sell at a reasonable price, please let me
know. It’d be really cool to make it to one more game this season…
Thank you so much!
(I’ll keep blogging throughout the off-season so keep checking back…)
